Scanning on MP830

Ho do I scan?

Posted by on

  • pqrstny Nov 02, 2008

    My Canon MP830 won't scan. The instruction book (pg 129) said that I have to have MP Drivers and MP Navigator installed. The copy portion of the Canon works. So I re-downloaded the MP Drivers and MP Navigator from the Canon site. It downloaded and self-extracted in the Canon folder successfully (so it said), but when I go to Start, All Programs, Canon--they're not there! so I can't launch MP Navigator like I'm supposed to. What am I doing wrong? One added thing...this is Vista 32 added onto a Mac. I'll never buy a Mac again. What a pain!

You're using this in OS 10.4, 10.5? MP Navigator was buggy in Tiger. Is it plugged directly into the computer (not through a hub)? Or you can download the third party VueScan drivers to make sure it's not hardware related.

Unless there is something tricky about your problem, it is pretty straight-forward:
1 - place the original on the platen or in the ADF
2 - press "Scan"
3 - choose save to PC, save to PDF, attach to email, open with app. and press OK
4 - choose 2-sided from ADF, 1-sided from ADF, from platen and press Ok
5 - let it do its thing.

I have a MP830 and when I try to scan in a doc. to my mac, it takes forever. I get this message "Processing calibration data from a scanner. Do not open the document cover."


The greater the detail setting the scanner is set to scan at, the greater will be the time taken to complete the scan process.

Lowering the detail settings may reduce the time taken to scan a document.
These settings may be found in the software that came with your printer.

Thanking you

I have a canon mp830. When scanning to pc, the MS Publisher app opens (or is suggested to open) which is fine, but no image comes across. It does not appear that the scanner is working although it copier...


When the Publisher application opens sometimes you have to manually scan the image from the software. When you press scan from the printer this only prompts the Pc to chose a program to open the image with. Allow the publisher app to fully open and look for an icon that says scan now or something similar then you should be able to see the document in the publisher software.

CANON MP830 WILL NOT FAX OR SCAN IF ONE INK IS EMPTY


It's true, you need inks before you can scan or fax, It's not just Canon, All of the all in one machines are the same way. HP, Brother, Samsung, It's the drawback to having an all-in-one machine.

Canon MP830 not scanning


It won't scan unless you have a program like picasso running on your computer to accept the scan. On the Canon you choose where you want the scanned image to go and if you choose the computer you need a program running to store or adjust the scanned image.

Can't scan from Pixma MP830


I have the same printer...there is a program in Canon Utilities called MP Navigator 2.2 (should have downloaded from the software). Open it from Start, All Programs, Canon Utilities, MP Navigator. (if you right click, you can create a shortcut on your Desktop which is convenient) Don't know how savvy you are, but I was able to figure it out and discovered that you can even scan documents, save them as a PDF file and send them through email.
